|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Downy Woodpeckers are the smallest of North America's woodpecker. The Downy Woodpecker is mainly black on the upperparts and wings, with a white back, throat and belly and white spotting on the wings. There is a white bar above the eye and one below. They have a black tail with white outer feathers barred with black. |
This picture is of an adult male which can be identified because of a red patch on the back of the head.
The Downy Woodpecker gives a number of vocalizations, including a short pik call. Like other woodpeckers, it also produces a drumming sound with its beak as it pecks into trees.

You have done o good job of photographing this pretty little woodpecker who seems very busy at the moment. I like the sharp focus and pleasing eye contact. You even managed to capture a tiny bit of catchlight in it's eye. Great job!!
